About the area:
Amsterdam is often referred to as one of the most colorful cities in the world. Where else do you find so many places of interest, famous museums, cozy pubs and fun shops and markets?
Visitors and locals alike enjoy the so-called “bruine cafés”, located throughout Amsterdam, their homely interiors and cozy atmosphere. Amsterdam’s Hortus, a 400-year-old botanical garden, has from way back been known as ‘the town’s pride and joy’ – an oasis of peace and beauty at the very center of the bustling city. The garden is almost 400 years old. You can marvel at world famous painters; Rembrandt, Vermeer, Jacob van Ruisdael and Jan Steen – whose top works of art have now been brought together in a single wing of the Rijks Museum.
Amsterdam’s historical charm is just one face of this dynamic modern city. The splendor of its waterside buildings blends with a sophisticated business environment, to create one of Europe’s most popular destinations.
